From the Publisher:
Knowing that successfully playing the game Epic will determine the quality of one's life on New Earth, Erik decides to risk it all to avenge his parents and subvert the rules of the game, but he ends up coming face-to-face with the Committee--the tyrannical rulers of the land. Reprint.Welcome to a society governed through computer games!

On New Earth, society is governed and conflicts are resolved in the arena of a fantasy computer game, Epic. If you win, you have the chance to fulfill your dreams; if you lose, your life both in and out of the game is worth nothing. When teenage Erik dares to subvert the rules of Epic, he and his friends must face the Committee. If Erik and his friends win, they may have the key to destroying the CommitteeÂ's tyranny. But if they lose . . .

Praise

"Kostick manages to aim his allegory at two separate targets: the pointless wastefulness of a government too big to correct its course or even know its true nature, and, on a slightly more trivial note, the waste of time gamers spend in their online 'second lives." 5/21/2007
